Atlatling with Mittens – Why a “Y” Atlatl is great in the winter

Have you ever shot an atlatl in the winter when it’s so cold that your fingers feel like they’re about to fall off? We have. That’s why we recommend a fingerless “Y” style atlatl like the Kanakadea for cold weather atlatling. Check out this video of Bob showing off his winter atlatl technique!
